"Surprises, battles and intrigue develop along with a love Celie cannot resist"

Celie Cameron was bored and wishing for some of the excitement missing since she left the terror of the Controllers and joined the Shielders in SHAMARA (Shielders version of 'Garden of Eden'). On what she thought was a routine delivery, Celie found the snakes in SHAMARA. Her whole life full of memories and mementoes were on her ship and it was her most valued possession. It was Rurick and Max's fault she was on this planet and now their help escaping just cost her ship and almost her life. Boredom was exchanged for fear for her life and that of stowaway family friend, Raven. Now she has to protect Raven from unknown enemies and possibly Max while she fights her own attraction to Max's android, Rurick.

Reading this story flowed smoothly with no jolts out of the fantasy. I was right there with Celie when she was thinking "be careful what you wish for" and with her protective feelings for Raven. The politics and subterfuge were believable (snakes in the Garden of Eden) and story compelling. Celie's mixed feelings for Rurick and his role- playing was realistic. You don't need to read the other books in the series to enjoy this story, but be warned; once you have read it, you will want the other books.

SHADOW CROSSING is just like a chocolate dessert... Fulfilling but if available you would enjoy more. Actually a second serving (I mean reading) is desired. I was tired and only going to read a couple of chapters before going to sleep but I couldn't put the book down. There are a few reasons that I appreciate being kept awake once in bed and this book is one of them.
